Manchester City will take on Arsenal this Sunday and Guardiola will be hoping to pick up all three points against the Gunners so that they can widen the gap at the top. City are currently sitting pretty at the top with 28 points – five points clear of arch-rivals Manchester United. United also have a high profile game against Chelsea on the very same day and the City boss will be hoping that Mourinho’s men drop points and fall further behind in the title race.


Guardiola will be looking to give a much-deserved rest to some of his players after the 4 goal demolition of Napoli in midweek. While Stones, Otamendi and Delph are expected to retain their place in the starting XI, Danilo might be rested and Kyle Walker will hopefully take up his place.

Gundogan will also be rested and David Silva is likely to take his place. The rest of the midfield is expected to look the same with Fernandinho in defensive midfield and Kevin De Bruyne partnering Silva as the other attacking midfielder.

The striking trio will hopefully look the same and Gabriel Jesus might find himself on the bench again.


Here’s how Guardiola might line up his men against Arsenal:
